How to Make a Change

, by Kris Wear - World of Nutrition

My name is Kris Wear and I am the co-owner of World of Nutrition, the Treasure Valley's largest independent health food store. I spent most of my life obese, even while working in a health food store. I have been addicted to cigarettes, alcohol, sugar, cheese, chips, ice cream and even now I am still struggling with a general food addiction that I battle on a daily basis.

In 2011 I decided that I wanted to become the picture of health and started to replace all of those bad habits or addictions with healthy habits. I made sure that I used the vast resources available to me and made a commitment to make my health my number 1 priority every day of my life because that's what you have to do if you want to be healthy. Health can not be down on your priority list, it has to be at the top.

 

Here is a list of ways that I changed my health and my life:

Don't listen to anyone else's advice about weight loss...listen to your body.

Stop making excuses - every reason you have not to eat healthy or exercise is an excuse. 

Keep track of what you eat and how much you move.

Quit drinking alcohol - alcohol causes depression and when you're depressed you overeat. 

Quit eating as much processed food as you possibly can.

Crash diets don't work - Slim Fast will not lead you to permanent weight loss. 

Don't deprive yourself - eat delicious food, just make healthy choices.
